Dog Bites/Injuries Lawyers Red Deer

It can take years to recover from the physical and psychological injuries sustained in a dog attack. Dog attacks can leave behind long-lasting scars. Whether physical or emotional in nature, these scars can continue haunting victims of dog attacks for years to come. They can also have profound impacts on their quality of life and their finances.

After being bitten by someone else’s dog, it is important to alert Alberta Animal Services bylaw enforcement. Doing so could help prevent the dog in question from harming anyone else. In addition, it is crucial to seek immediate medical attention to address any physical injuries sustained or potentially life-threatening infections that have been transmitted, including:

  • Rabies
  • Tetanus
  • Endocarditis
  • Sepsis
  • Meningitis
  • Pasteurella
  • Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
  • And possibly more

Being physically injured by an aggressive dog can be a grueling process. Victims who have been attacked may require reconstructive surgeries, lengthy periods of hospitalizations, and other costly medical expenses. Furthermore, injured victims of a dog attack can develop serious mental health concerns that drastically affect their overall quality of life. These commonly include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Phobias
  • Insomnia and other sleep disorders
  • Alcohol and/or substance abuse disorder
  • Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) in relation to disfigurement or physical scarring
  • And more

Coping with the physical and psychological repercussions of a dog attack is often an expensive process. It is not fair for the victims of someone else’s pet to incur substantial financial losses as a result of their aggressive, out of control behaviour.

If the owner of an aggressive dog fails to take any kind of preventative actions to keep their pet from biting, mauling, or otherwise attacking a guest on their premises,their insurance provider might be liable for the victim’s resulting damages. That is because, according to the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, the people who own or control access to commercial and residential properties are responsible for the safety of their visitors. Failing to proactively prevent injuries on-site could be considered negligence.

Unfortunately, insurers often find ways to delay or deny benefits payments to injured victims of dog attacks for a number of reasons, many of which are difficult to comprehend. By working with our Red Deer dog bite lawyers, injured victims of dog attacks may be able to get the financial compensation to which they should be rightfully entitled.
